america achieve new heights of prosperity on earth while demonstrating the power of a free, open society, to harness the ingenuity of his people. i have been part of that generation so inspired by the space program. 1961 was the year of my birth, the year kennedy made his announcement. one of my earliest memories of sitting on my grandfather's shoulders, waving a flag at astronauts arrived in hawaii. for me the space program has always captured and essential part of what it means to be an american. reaching for new heights, stretching beyond what previously did not seem possible. so as president, i believe that space exploration is not a luxury, it's not an afterthought in america's quest for a brighter future, it's an essential part of that quest. so today i'd like to talk about the next chapter in the story. the challenges facing our space program are different. our imperative for this program are different than in decades past. we're no longer racing against an adversariy or compete to go achieve a singular goal like reaching the moon. what was once a global competition is long since

's greatest years may not still lie before it, that some sort of way of life or some vision of america that they had in the past is changing and indeed, the country is changing. it's much more diverse. this is not a bipolar world anymore where you have the u.s.-soviet competition looming over everything else. it's a multipolar world where the challenges are as much economic as military and come from all parts of the world where we don't have a manufacturing base like we used to. there's a lot of dislocation going on and i think what you see is a lot of people who sense that dislocation intensely and react to it as we all react to something that's new and unfamiliar and frightening. >> and more so than either democrats or republican, tea party members, 84% of them have a negative opinion of barack obama and the job he's doing. 96% of them have a bad opinion of the way congress is doing its job. this is one representative voice, michele bachmann at today's rally. >> it is all about this coming november. we have to take the house f then the senate and two years from now, barack obama is a
